Roselynn Verwoord- Bio
As an educator, facilitator, and curriculum developer, I have worked in a variety of formal and informal educational settings both locally and internationally. As an educator, I bring a commitment to constructivism and humanism in the classroom, which emphasize learners being actively involved in creating meaning knowledge and meaning. Presently, I work as a Curriculum Consultant at the at the Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where I support departments and units to develop curriculum and related courses and materials. I also teach in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College. My formal education includes a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Curriculum as well as a Master of Arts in Society, Culture, and Politics in Education. I am currently completing a PhD in Educational Studies from UBC.
My research interests include teacher inquiry, arts-based educational research, student engagement, and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). I am committed to education as a tool for social change and I strive to create spaces where research is about ‘re-searching’ both individually and collectively. Firmly believing in the importance of relationships and engaging in the community, I actively seek out opportunities to work in partnership with students and community members. As a researcher, I aim to create opportunities for research partners and participants to engage as equal voices in research and inquiry processes. My research inquiries are motivated by a desire to see a more equal and just world – a world where all voices are valued and at the table.
